Cauliflower "Mashed Potatoes" Yummy Yummy in my Tummy!"

Today was LEG DAY!! Legs are my weakness. I used to dread working out legs, but I have a newly found motivation that pushes me to hit legs HARD CORE! In order to achieve my personal goals I have to be pushed beyond my limits. Having never had a consist ant workout partner, this has always been a challenge for me, but we must remember that "when we cheat we are only cheating ourselves". I workout legs twice a week. The first part of the week I concentrate on Quads and the second part - Hamstrings and Glutes.

Today's Leg Routine

*Warm-up: Leg Extensions (45 lbs x 15 reps)

*Super Set: Leg Extensions & Leg Press
Extensions 75 lbs x 15 reps x 4 sets)
Leg Press (200 lbs x 15 reps x 3 set / 270 lbs x 15 reps x 1 set)

*Single-leg Lunges on Smith Machine (70 lbs x 15 reps x 3 sets)

*Super Set: Hack Squat & Walking Lunges
Hack Squat (90 lbs x 15 reps x 3 sets)
Walking Lunges (Two 25 lbs dumbbells x 24 reps x 3 sets)

*Single-leg Stiff-leg Deadlift (15 lbs dumbbells x 15 reps x 3 sets)

*Hamstring Curls (75 lbs x 15 reps x 3 sets)

And now by "special request" latest recipe...CAULIFLOWER "MASHED POTATOES"

1 head cauliflower
1/8 Almond Milk (I buy Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk by "Almond Breeze" - low carbs!)
Salt & pepper

Cook cauliflower until fork tender. Place cauliflower (in pieces), almond milk, salt and pepper in blender. Whip until smooth. Pour cauliflower into small baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika and bake in hot oven until bubbly.

*I don't currently own a blender :) so I improvise and mash mine with a fork and my meat tenderizing mallet! Hey...whatever gets the job done! I can't wait to try them whipped though as I'm sure they will be even MORE DELIC! I'd love to hear how yours turned out!

Until tomorrow...MUCH LOVE!
